Default Teenage years

When do they end?? I'm not sure we will survive!! I think we've entered them... Samson has been in training and can execute every command beautifully with just a cue, a cue and verbal or just verbal when we are training and when I call them at random times.... but if something else has attention he just looks at me like yeah and keeps on doing what he wants.... so frustrating... any words of encouragement as we get through this stage? or how to get through this stage? He just turned 7 months yesterday. Thanks for your help

Lynn

He should outgrow it in a couple months. Maybe less depends on the dog. It WILL and DOES get better. Keep your chin up and your smile in place. LOL

Haha. Horatio is just over 8 months and he's already starting to relax and listen better. Had to get over that stubborn hump. Keep your head up!

I think Sally is doing a me for teenage years... sleeping all the time! and crazy active, can't sit still when she isn't asleep...
She went to sleep at 7pm last night after sleeping nearly all day in the car, and slept till 730am when I got her up, then at 8 she hid under the covers in our bed and went back to sleep, I had to wake her up so that I could go to work at 830am...
We went away over the weekend and she was tied up outside all weekend, we took her for a couple of walks each day but she slept the rest of the time... When we stopped to visit my sister on the way home I was trying to show her some of sally's "tricks", Sally just yawned, laydown and went to sleep... silly puppy! On the oval with other dogs mind you she went CRAZY! good crazy though, running jumping and playing nicely with a Shiba Inu, She tried playing with two others but one was just scared and the other was being possessive of his ball...

Nikki is the exact same!! except she has no fear lol She loves to sleep and cuddle and when she's not doing that she's completely wild but then back to my cuddly little girl again. I just love my cuddles!! I don't get much done as I can't resist her! She is 9.5 months now

Sally is scared of nothing except flapping curtains, but other dogs are sometimes scared of her, she is a little too crazy for some of them... but those are the one the owners admit haven't been well socialised.

rusty was never a super crazy boy but had his teenage years and by one grew up a little and now at 2 he is like an old man lol but still loves to play. Dually is a year and i am not sure what stage were in but she is one crazy girl. just doesnt sit still ever she has to constantly be doing something. We are constantly working with her on training and what not bc she is so active

My Tyson is like that. He is 7.5 mo and we are def in the teenage years. Constant training, constant watching. He is in to everything, all the time, and extremely stubborn. Constant repetition and the e collar helps immensely. He actually layed down last night. Usually he runs and plays constantly for 2-3 hrs at night- even w going for 2 1.5 mi walks a day. Last night was awesome. I could use more. Lol
